One of the last Hibbing area players turned out OK.
Haha I was thinking of McHale, and also thinking that was half a century ago. I guess I meant I did not think we would have players from there going forward but this is cool to see.

Also excellent nickname potential.

The Iron Ranger?

With his name Isaac...how about Steel Shaft?

Gotta say I did not think we would be recruiting guys from Virginia/Hibbing area. Love to see it.
I'd like to go on record that I predict the University of Minnesota Athletic Department will not market this young man, or any student athlete, as "Steel Shaft" or, heaven forbid, "The Steel Shaft."

Common Man just discussed this offer and the kid. Had very positive things to say about him and Johnson. Common’s kid played with and/or against Asuma.
I remember playing his cousin in the early 2000’s. I’m from Cook (which is now Northwoods High School) which is about a half an hour away. His mother was also a very good basketball player in her own right. I also believe there is another Asuma brother coming up behind him as well.

There is. I think he is like 8th grade? He played varsity and did well but is young.

there are 3 brothers on the team; 7th, 8th, and 10th graders. At one point in the state tournament this year, they were all on the court at the same time. Very cool. Isaac is a player! Word at the tourney was that one of the younger ones has the most potential. Scary.
